5 facts about liposuction that are important to know (especially if you are already thinking about it)

 Liposuction can really solve the problem with problem areas of the body, but this is not a story about losing weight. Here are five things to keep in mind before deciding on surgery.

1: Liposuction doesn't help you lose weight

This myth is regularly refuted, but patients do not stop believing that it is possible to get rid of excess weight with the help of plastic surgery without making any effort. The doctor will "pump out" excess fat - and the size will miraculously decrease from 52 to 44.

Unfortunately this is not possible. But with the help of liposuctionindividual irregularities and defects of the body can be eliminated... For example, a fat pad on the abdomen , folds on the back, "booty ears" on the hips, fat rolls on the knees. Any local deposits and fat traps that are not amenable to diets, massage and exercise are subject to liposuction.

2: Liposuction does not remove all the fat

No health risk more than 2-3 liters of fat cannot be removed in one steph. If you need more, you will need several sessions. And even in this case, it will not be possible to remove all the fat to the end, because a small layer of adipose tissue must be left.

3: Liposuction is not an easy operation

The opinion that liposuction does not require special knowledge leads me to patients who want to correct "Tunnels", pits and irregularities that have arisen due to the inexperience of the doctorfailed to properly remove adipose tissue.

Patients who have a minimal body fat and want to get rid of it completely in order to get a beautiful and pronounced muscle relief are especially at risk. Such an operation requires great skill from the surgeon. The thinner the fat layer, the more difficult it is to remove it evenly without leaving noticeable imperfections. 

4: Repeat liposuction is not recommended

It is believed that liposuction can be repeated as many times as you like. But this is undesirable. After liposuction, the removed fat is replaced by connective tissue, which creates a visible skin tightening effect, but at the same time prevents repeated liposuction.

It is important to know: if everything is done well the first time, repeated liposuction of the same area will not be required. Fat cells are not restored...

5: You can still gain weight after liposuction

Can't get fat after liposuction? No matter how it is. If you regularly overeat and lead a sedentary lifestyle, the likelihood of gaining excess weight is very high.

Not so long ago to me again a patient came to whom I already had liposuction five years ago... Since we removed the fatty tissue from the abdomen and outer thighs, deposits appeared in other areas: the back, knees, buttocks. This distribution of adipose tissue looks rather strange.

To add optimism, I will say that although liposuction is not a panacea, it will be a good helper for those who want to lose weight and achieve beautiful body proportions. And she can also motivate and inspire further success.
